Apple has released new versions of iMovie both for North American English and International English Mac OS 9 operating systems. The new version, 2.0.3, is available for download from Apple’s Web site.
iMovie is Apple’s consumer-oriented digital video editing software. Using a DV-equipped camcorder and a FireWire equipped Mac, you can use iMovie to import and edit your own home videos, inserting and moving video clips, adding sounds and music, images, special effects, title and other features. You can then export them as QuickTime movies or write them back out to your DV-equipped video device. iMovie 2 is included with several Mac models, and is available for purchase from the Apple store as well.
iMovie 2.0.3 adds the ability to export to iDVD, Apple’s consumer-oriented DVD mastering software. iDVD is included on Apple’s high-end Power Mac G4 system, the Power Mac G4/733. That model is equipped with a “SuperDrive,” an optical drive capable of writing DVD-R discs, which can be played back in a conventional DVD player. Apple indicates that performance and stability improvements have also been added to iMovie 2.0.3.
The updater will update any previous version of iMovie 2 to iMovie 2.0.3. It is not designed to upgrade older versions of iMovie to version 2.0.3, however — iMovie 1.x is not supported by this updater.
Separate updates exist for the
North American English
2.0.3 update to iMovie and the
2.0.3 update. Please select the one most applicable to your operating system before continuing.
